Use a service manual if you need to do more than change oil and/or filters.
AN400K3 Service Manual part number is 99500-34080-03E .


The following images May Not Be At Scale.


Below is the little O-Ring that gets slipped down the tube (flush against the bottom) that the filter then slides onto.
Unless my 400 Burgy filter chamber is left open to the elements I do not
clean the mating surfaces inside the tube prior to placing the new o-ring
down to the bottom.


________________

Below is the filter element itself.
My AN400K3 owners book states to be careful not to reverse the install
of the filter onto the tube but the latest revision (16510-25C00) of the filter makes it
impossible to do so.



________________

Below is the O-Ring that is on the inside of the oil filter element cover.
I've been able to clean the cover and flange face to save a cover gasket
once or twice. Look for growth of oil and dirt around the seal after running
the bike again (at high speed) to determine if the next change requires
better cleaning and/or new gasket.
Always apply oil sheen to all mating sides of an o-ring gasket after cleaning
mating surfaces.
To complete, torque all three bolts of the cover only snugly back down and don't over do it.
The cover gasket is doing the sealing here not excessive bolt torque.

oil change stuff

Hi Everyone,

New 400 rider, love it. If you would tell me exactly what I need to do to change the oil i would be most greatful. I assume these are the materials i'll need but the process in changing. I never changed the oil and i know that I can if shown or explained on the procedure.

Thanks for your help guys and gals!

George

gluce61 baby, You've got no Profile for yourself and that will make it impossible for me to e-mail you (junk mail growth).

A Burgy owner has the necessary info in their owners manual.
The rest is parts, patience, paper towels and the right tools like sockets.
The two o-rings and filter (pictured) are required. Some mechanics
can get away without replacing o-rings, especially at only 600 miles.
I put a new tube o-ring on anyway because a good seal there assures
proper oil pressure and filtering.

The selling dealer for your Burgman has the parts plus numerous posts here
have given mail order phone numbers for them too although shipping costs
get tacked on every time, so make a substantial order.

What I did was to order about four filters, tube o-rings, cover gasket o-rings
and one valve cover gasket to offset each orders shipping costs. Ron Ayers
can take a week to ten days to get a Ground box to appear at the door but
your account gets debited on the day the order is made. The Ayers boys will
not add to an existing order once you part company on the phone
and that will add additional shipping charges if you want more afterwards.
